OSARCC is recruiting SEE Project Counsellors

Are you an inspiring woman with experience of working with girls and young women? We are recruiting 2 trained counsellors to provide a therapeutic counselling service to young women and girls aged 14-18 in the SEE Project (Support, Empower, Educate).

The SEE project is funded by the Big Lottery Women and Girls Initiative and provides holistic support to young women and girls who have experienced sexual violence. The project works collaboratively with local partner agencies including schools, expanding the local provision to young women and girls across Oxfordshire who have been affected by sexual violence at some point in their lives.

The SEE Project is part of Oxfordshire Sexual Abuse and Rape Crisis Centre. The work will initially be online but gradually move to face to face working.
